    I bought my Scion at the second dealer I tried (2 hours drive away) because the first dealer (only 4 miles away) was so bad. My experiences buying a VW and a Honda were wonderful, but the cars themselves were lemons. My last actual purchase was a used car from a used car dealer, and the experience was great. I've bought 3 cars far from home, and those have been the best ones, since the distance proved to be a useful bargaining chip. I haven't experienced a link between quality and shopping satisfaction.
